One of the essential purposes of cultural institutions such as the Moton Museum is to document, contextualize, and preserve various elements of human culture and memory.
Our work in this regard has been focused on Prince Edward’s Civil Rights history and its contributions towards expanding civil rights in education for all. In these trying times that we are experiencing as a result of COVID-19, we would like to expand on that.
The Moton Museum would like to provide a space for all members of our community to reflect, record, and share your experiences during the COVID-19 crisis. Share what speaks to you.
Please take the time to write a letter, jot a note, draw or take a picture, or record a video about how COVID-19 has impacted your life. (Example: A museum supporter submit a photo that they took of their family and a note reflecting how they were grateful for the gift of quality time).
Moton has created a google form for written submissions, but please send your pictures, drawings, or videos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team here at Moton looks forward to documenting these stories via a digital or in-person exhibit in the future.
Your submissions will be collected into a digital archive. Additionally, we will share some of your submissions on social media and an online and in-person exhibit format at a later date. We hope that your stories will help to inform future generations about life during COVID-19.
